Here's your Copper River salmon forecast

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is projecting a commercial catch of 1.6 million sockeye and 22,000 Chinook this year at the ballyhooed Copper River.

Last year produced 1.58 million sockeye and 8,688 Chinook.

What percentage of the fabled Copper River catch, was actually headed elsewhere? First, not fair to market plain old fish as Copper river, and second, stop intercepting other people's fish! The offshore, open ocean drift fishery has turned into a monster. No doubt there's interception, but the CDFU seems to control the Dept.'s ability to use DNA to find out. Bragging about your super catches, and super prices, while selling fish you stole from the rest of us is getting old. I wanna go 12 miles offshore too!
